Remember the Image!

Unfortunately, this study does not work in your current browser. Please use Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Sorry!

This experiment tests your ability to remember an image.

On each trial, an image will appear, and then it will disappear. When it disappears, a "mask" image will appear to cover up the image, and then you will be given a chance to report what that image looked like.

Using a slider, you will be able to cycle through different image options in order to choose the image that you actually saw. Once you're satisfied with your judgment, you'll click a button to proceed to the next trial.

Remember: You must try to pick the image that exactly matches the one you saw! Keep adjusting until you are satisfied with the match!

By completing this survey or questionnaire, you are consenting to be in this research study. Your participation is voluntary and you can stop at any time.

(NOTE: When the experiment is done, a submit button should appear. To complete the study, please click the button.)


First, you'll do an example, so you can understand the task. In this example, the image will remain on screen the whole time. However, in the actual study, the image will disappear and you'll have to rely on your memory!

Once you choose the matching image, you can start the actual study. To reveal the image and slider, click the "Show" button below.
